Jazz on a Summer's Day is a concert film set at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island.
This documentary concert film captures the sounds and performances of some major jazz artists. Unlike earlier jazz movies that had been filmed in smoky black and white, this is shot in vibrant color. While musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Anita O'Day and Mahalia Jackson perform, images of beaches, sailboats on water, dancing couples and the faces of joyful audience members are intercut into the proceedings.
